Cruising Adventures Aboard Brand New PC52, JABULANI

30 Mar 16

Frank and Libby Simon are the proud owners of JABULANI, a brand new PC52. So what do you do with a beautiful new luxury power catamaran? Invite friends out for a day of cruising and fishing of course! Frank and Libby invited fellow Horizon Power Catamaran owners Alec and Barbara Hammond out for a day of fishing and cruising in the Tongue of the Ocean off Mangrove Cay, Andros Island.  JABULANI proved to be an extraordinary fishing platform in a sea more lively than most fishermen would tolerate fishing in, sending them back to port to tell fish stories. Andros Island, located in the Bahamas, is known for having a habitat that richly supplies the largest bonefish population in the Bahamas and for that matter, in the world. Fishing in luxury and style aboard JABULANI proved to be a successful venture that would be the envy of any sport fisherman, (at least the yachting sort.) JABULANI was custom designed and built to spec to meet the needs of the new owners Frank and Libby Simo


Design & Structural Integrity are Key for Blue Water Cruising & Safety

23 Mar 16

Blue-water cruising in a luxury yacht is THE ultimate experience and in calm conditions, it’s smooth sailing so-to-speak. But conditions aren’t always calm, which is why it is important that your boat is as rugged and sea-worthy as it is luxurious. Rough sea conditions can create unsafe circumstances and even threaten the structural integrity of boats. A recent blog by Tow Boats illustrates this point very well. A 51 foot Leopard power catamaran was in choppy 5 to 7 foot seas and 25 knot winds, off the coast of Port Everglades, when the Master hailed for assistance. The fiberglass on the foredeck was ripping apart and the sea worthiness of the vessel was compromised. A salvage crew from Tow Boats was able to rescue the crew and save the vessel, but this demonstrates the importance of not only a well-designed boat but also a well-constructed vessel. At Horizon Power Catamarans our yachts are built for performance and durability with the highest standards in luxury, design and sa

Boats.com.au Horizon PC52: Review

01 Dec 15

Written by Barry Wiseman at BoatSales.com.au A true long-haul luxury bluewater cruiser for the WA coast Even for the designers and engineers at the Kaohsiung headquarters in Taiwan, this Horizon Power Cat 52 Skylounge set new boundaries and, dare I say it, new horizons. The brief was to provide a vessel with the range and stamina for its owners and guests to stay at sea for up to three months in one of the most remote regions on the globe. Enough power, fuel, refrigeration, and pantry room, to be able to cruise from the south west of Western Australia to Darwin and the Top End. OVERVIEW - The second Horizon Power Cat 52 Skylounge to arrive in Australia The Horizon PC52 is a luxury ocean-going catamaran, built to satisfy the need of experienced mariners who have long distance cruising in mind. It is based on the popular PC60 and being in the 50-foot range (almost 16m) has attracted great interest. The interior is huge and the owners of this vessel have had a lot of input to cr
